First... hi! I'm new to the baby naming board... my name is Rachel and I'm expecting #3 in January. Having a heck of a time coming up with a name! My DD is Leah Simone and my DS is Logan Patrick. We didn't intentionally go with an "L" theme, it just happened to be the names that we loved Here are some names we are considering (in no particular order)... what do you think? We have a semi-long last name, so I try to keep the first names somewhat short and sweet.

Girls
Chloe
Mia (rhymes with my DD Leah... but I really like it!)
Maisey (May-Zee)
Lily

Boys
Ian
Evan
Liam
Collin

I love Liam and Lily to go with your set, unless you're planning more after this one, then I'd for sure skip on the L theme.

Do you think Liam is too close to my DD's name, Leah?

I don't think Liam's too close to sounding like Leah. It's a cute name for a little boy.

Lily's a nice name for a girl. Not really a huge fan of the others. Maisey makes me think of maize.

If it were me I would follow the L pattern because baby #3 may feel left out. I think Lily, Leah, and Logan are perfect.

Even if you didn't intentionally want to stick to the L theme, I LOVE both Liam and Lily!

I actually think that Liam and Leah are too close. I do like Lily with your other children's names. I like the other three boy names you listed...I prefer Evan of the three. Of the girl names you have listed, besides Lily, I kind of like Maisey but prefer Macy.

ETA- since Mia is too close to Leah...maybe consider Mya/Maya

Is this your last baby? If so... I'd stick with the "L" theme so your baby doesn't feel "left out"!

If you're planning on having more down the line... I would just pick whatever name you're absolutely in love with... it doesn't necessarily have to be a "L" name!

L names I like that go along with your other LO's names include:

Girls-
Lakin
Lane
Lara
Lark
Laura
Lori


Boys-
Landon
Laird
Lance
Levi
Luke
Lyle

Your "non-L" names I like are Maci (I prefer it spelled this way... but that's just me!), Colin and Evan

HTH!

Liam and Lily are, by far, my favorites from your list. However, I'd only go with another L name if this is your last child. If you're going to have any more children, I would go with a name that starts with something other than L (as I wouldn't want 4+ kids all with names starting with L and I wouldn't want to have 3 kids with names starting with L and 1 kid with a name starting with, say, C).

Chloe - nmsaa
Mia - I don't like that it rhymes with Leah's name
Maisey - This name is okay and my 2nd fave to Lily

Ian - nms
Evan - nms
Liam - I like this name as a nn for William and I do think it's a little close to Leah's name too
Collin - nms

I like Liam and Mia. And I don't think you have to continue with the L theme just because your other two have L names. Honestly, I don't think kids really care if their name matches their sibling or not, it's not something they think about. My dad, my brother, my half sister and myself all have names starting with J and my other brother is an R. It's never bothered him, he's never even put any thought into it.
